Blog: The Art Of Pursuing Your Passion

The “P” Word
Passion: It’s a word we hear often. It’s in movie titles, book titles, church names, and paint colors. It evokes emotion and memories; camaraderie and battle. It might even turn into a new family member if the lighting is right (wink, wink).

But how often does it turn into a business plan or the means it requires to take the first step to reaching a goal?

I mean, what is passion anyway? An elongated spurt of motivation? A feeling? A knowing? A belief?

I would say it’s a burn. It’s your why. It’s whatever excites you about the idea of opening your eyes in the morning. And it’s certainly worth pursuing.

BLOG:  Music Lessons From a Queen. Performance vs. Experience.


A few weeks ago, I had one of the most gripping live music experiences I have ever had. I frequent music shows - indie and mainstream alike - but this was unlike anything I had ever experienced. 

I’ve always heard of people getting chills from seeing artists perform, but I had never experienced it for myself until now.

BLOG: The Unexpected Ways Getting a Dog Changed My Life 🐾

BACKSTORY

It was spring of 2018. I had just released my debut EP and life was finally slowing down after 6 months of a grueling schedule. I found myself accomplished, but still missing something. I sat in my studio apartment on a Sunday morning, in a solemn mood, thinking of how to seize the day. I decided to walk to Piedmont park and pray while walking. Looking for guidance, I felt I heard an inner voice tell me to get a dog.

I had been wanting a dog for a while, but didn’t feel that I was ready. I always said it was too much like having a child and too much responsibility. Let alone, my landlord wasn’t keen on having animals in his property. But that’s what I felt I heard. 

When I got back from my walk, I took to Twitter for casual entertainment. Within the first 3 minutes, I started seeing posts of people with their dogs. I looked to the left to discover that #NationalRescueDogDay was trending. “Wow”, I thought and took it as a sure sign.

Blog: What It Was Like Releasing My First REAL Album

This year, I achieved what I consider to be one of my greatest accomplishments so far: released a real album. It’s significant for several reasons. Most people probably recognize the value in being able to successfully put my art out there from an artistic standpoint, and there is value in that, but what I’m REALLY proud of is the stuff that nobody else really knows about….
